I performed a 5-minute audio-visual piece at CultureHub for an audience of about 50 people! Here is a recording of it – the piece is called Big Dark Age.
As a group performance, me and my team (Huiyi Chen & Fanni Fazakas) created an object theater installation & performance called No ∞ Symphony.
The piece is an expression of the modern version of the story of Sisyphus – suggesting that life is an endless cycle of actions and choices.
My work in Max MSP is getting more advanced.Yet at times, things can look very very complicated:
Some classmates and I will be putting together an object theatre based live performance later this week. Stay tuned for documentation.
I performed a short A/V experience for my class yesterday using the Max patch referenced here.
I am so sorry (in advance) to everyone for my off-pitch ad-lib singing.
Music: ‘Put me thru’ by Anderson. Paak
Over the past few weeks I have been working on my first ‘patch’ – an interface for controlling an audio-visual performance. Here is a still-shot of something made by the patch:
I made a gas pedal-style video speed controller / interface in Max/MSP. When you press down on the mouse, it accelerates the playback speed of the video. When the mouse is released, the throttle eases back towards 1x speed:
The acceleration rates and deceleration rates can also be changed with the two sliders in the middle.
I see a lot of potential to manipulate time and light elements with Max/MSP, so I have begun collecting footage of things that may be interesting to:
- Speed up, slow down, time lapse, reverse, etc.
- Apply filters of light to, and play with lens glare a little
Here is an example of some footage I collected recently – biking around Brooklyn. Hopefully it can turn into something nice!
Max/MSP will be the primary tool of all work in the ‘Live Image Processing’ category.
